If I may chime in...

This may just be a matter of editorial taste, but would it be possible
to make it so the 'X' on in the Tab staff is not the musical glyph
from Feta, but rather the character 'capital X' from the same font set
being used for tab numbers? For example, instead of #'glyph-name
#"2cross", use whatever command would call the capital X from
whichever font tab numbers are set to?

I believe that this looks better on the page than mixing music glyphs
and text glyphs in the tab staff, particularly where tab numbers and
muted strings are part of the same chord.
Hm, in my opinion, this looks not very convincing. I defined

#(define (xx-tab-format str context event)
      (markup "X"))))

so the "X" matches the font and font-size of the numbers.
I have attached an example.

Have you tried a sans-serif font for both the numbers and the X?
Not yet. Personally, I don't like the idea of using a letter instead of a cross,
but I can give it a try.
